Abstract

A DH InGaAsP/InP mesa laser and a DH InGaAsP/InP mass-transport laser were successfully put together wIth an InGaAsP/InP heterojunction bipolar transistor in a vertical configuration. A laser threshold current as low as 17 mA and an output laser power of over 30 mW were achieved. Base injection current-controlled optical bistability and optical switching were demonstrated.
